Actually they do. Buttercup, the golden (seizure detection, mobility assistance) puts me to bed by lying next to the pillows with her chin on my neck or shoulder. Ivan, the Anatolian (mobility assistance, qualified therapy as well), sleeps on my legs, sometimes curled up, sometimes with his head on my stomach.

They make me feel very safe, and they don't mind if I cry into their fur. One of Buttercups commands is "make better" which means lie next to someone and put her chin on their chest while the person pets or holds her. She is still working on therapy qualification.
